The Hawaiians adapted the instrument to the rhythms of their own traditional dance meters by slacking or loosening the keys. It is characterized by cross-tuning, finger picking, and lots of bluesy string bending and slides. Many people find it calm and enjoyable, with sweet island appeal.

The Jumping Flea. The Portugese brought their 4 stringed guitar or ‘Machete de Braga’ to Hawaii in 1879, when they emigrated to work in the sugar industry. The Hawaiians were impressed with the speed these musicians’ fingers flew on the fingerboard, they dubbed the instrument ‘ukulele’ or jumping flea. With the support of musical monarchs King Kalaukaua and Queen Lilioukalani, this tiny cross between a guitar and a banjo with its sweet sound and ease of mastering was soon adopted as the National Instrument of Hawaii. Later it spread to the United States and eventually to the world. Today the Ukulele is enjoying a renewed popularity with Uke Festivals held in many states and countries.
